They looked like strong hands.
Shooting at Family Research Center in D.C.
A security guard at the Family Research Council
was shot and wounded Wednesday morning after a scuffle with a man who expressed disagreement with the groupís conservative views in the lobby of the groupís headquarters in downtown Washington, authorities said.
D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said the shooter walked into the lobby of the building at about 10:45 and was confronted by the security guard as if the guard were asking him where he was going.
I was patiently waiting for someone to post this topic. I'm surprised no one did, considering the intended target was an Anti-gay lobbying group.
GLAAD and other LBGT support groups immediately condemned the shooter and his actions. However, the shooting is being used as a rallying cry for a lot of more aggressive anti-gay groups. It's being used to fund raise and garner support for their cause.
Personally, I find it disgusting that these groups are using this as a catalyst to attempt to suppress gays even more. But this is exactly why groups like GLAAD don't do anything more than peaceful demonstrations; they know if they provide the spark, people like Westboro will turn the topic into a wildfire.
What are your thoughts on this? Also, KTOWN, we know you think gays are the reason Troy fell and the Persian empire was taken over by Alexander the Great, so you can save your energy...
If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
maybe you would never have to hurt again...
